Anna Lunoe lays down a scorching score to the ‘Right Party’ on latest EP [Review]

Anna Lunoe lays down a scorching score to the ‘Right Party’ on latest EP [Review]IMG 9886 1

Besides being a relatively new mother to her toddler, Willa, the Australian-born Anna Lunoe is also a diligent and tactful mother of dance beats. The HYPERHOUSE heroine’s twofold finesse both behind the decks and in the studio has earned her accolades in the form of a Skrillex-championed OWSLA signing, collaborations with dance music majesty like Chris Lake and Flume, as well as her watershed billing as the first-ever female solo act to take the EDC Vegas main stage under siege in 2016.

In the “Stomper” sponsor’s latest display of dance-floor irreverence, Lunoe has shared her four-part aural road map to the Mad Decent-housed Right Party. The EP is an all-out Lunoe-powered affair, complete with her own get-down-friendly vocal cuts, which encircle her galloping bass lines like the designated painfully cool girl compelling the party like child’s play (“Follow me / I’ll take ya’ to the right party”).

The previously released cuts from the EP, “303” and “What You Need,” featuring Wuki, arrive alongside two brand new offerings, “Right Party” and “Creep.” While “Creep” adds to the festivity’s more texturized foliage, with its crowded-party-themed chatter samples and squawky analog melodies, “What You Need” wastes no time reaching its raucous objective, with a teeth-grinding-reminiscent (in the most mellifluous way possible) bass line and slapping percussion to boot. And perhaps the most delectable of the four-course meal is “303,” which sees Eminem’s iconic “Without Me” vocal hook morphed and molded to fit Lunoe’s devilishly danceable agenda (“This looks like a job for me / So, everybody just follow me / If you want to get a little tipsy / We can dance to the beat of the 303”).

The EP is less of a dramatic departure than it is a coquettish dose of sonic experimentation within the household mode she’s already explored so voraciously. If there was any ambivalence remaining as to whether or not Lunoe can command a dance floor with the same ease and ferocity as John Bonham can bang a drum, there shouldn’t be after attending the Right Party.


The EP accompanies Lunoe’s announcement of an impending world tour scheduled to beat on through the remainder of summer 2019.

Dancing in the dark: Drezo talks new EP series, hip-hop origins, and disregard for genre tags [Interview]

Dancing in the dark: Drezo talks new EP series, hip-hop origins, and disregard for genre tags [Interview]Drezo Press

Heaven is a place in hell for infernal mid-tempo master, Andre Haglund, widely known as Drezo. In recent years, a deliciously dark cloud has swept over electronic music with Lovecraftian non-subtlety—and Drezo has had an integral hand in expediting its unholy arrival. After a lengthy release hiatus, Drezo has begun rolling out a new EP series entitled Omens, which he describes as multi-track emblems of his trademark sound.

“I just want to represent where the heart of my whole entity lies,” Drezo tells Dancing Astronaut of the impending EP. “The dark, gritty club vibe, an atmosphere, really, which is very addicting to some people,” says the LA-based producer.

While Drezo has yet to solidify a day of reckoning for Omens Vol. 1, he has shared the first driving, electro house harbinger of the inaugural EP. The track is aptly named “Afterlife“—fitting for Drezo’s shadowy appeal.

The dramatic nature of the track, says Drezo, is meant to symbolize “a new era” for the seasoned beatmaker; a level-up of sorts. Indeed, the “Guap” producer has eclipsed major benchmarks to earn steady, consistent appearances on the most prestigious billings in the electronic ether, including his explosive appearance at EDC Las Vegas in May.

But before he was sucking souls from high-in-the-sky stage setups and having his cream-of-the-crop cuts played out by the likes of Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Zeds Dead, and a menagerie of other EDM eminence, he was a regular college kid, selling weed, trying to make ends meet. That is, until a cop tipped him off that his operation smelled a little louder than he may have thought.

“I stopped [selling] and the next day I went to Guitar Center and bought all this DJ equipment. I really loved music and just thought ‘Fuck it.’”

Perhaps the magnum opus of DJ genesis stories, if one ever existed.

New to DJing, but open to any and every opportunity, Drezo soon scored himself a small residency DJing eight-hour slots twice per weekend, in addition to, he says, birthday parties, frat functions, and any other conceivable DJ-friendly backdrop—often for little-to-no pay. 

“And I was a shit DJ, and kind of just a placeholder,” he says of his most nascent years behind the decks. “But because I did it so much, I learned a lot about structure and mixing, and that’s when I started experimenting with hip-hop and house music.”

The darkness in Drezo’s sound is self-evident. And he’s certainly run with the fire and brimstone branding that his sound seamlessly bred (note the demon orgy-themed live visuals from his most recent tour, compliments of heavily electronically aligned visual artist, Sus Boy). But underneath the beguiling guise and vitriolic live visuals, it’s not hard to see that he’s a hungry, humble fellow from Arizona who just wants to make and mix his house music (laced with a dash of malice for good measure).

“I don’t try to be ‘evil,’” Drezo maintains. “It’s funny because when I make music that’s how it turns out. It’s very tonal—there’s not much melody. It’s very sound design and rhythm-driven. It sounds dark and I just go with it.”

And while his malevolent signature will run rampant on the new EP series, Drezo says he has plans to venture further into aural experimentation in LP format soon, particularly in the hip-hop/G-house arena—a realm wherein a young Haglund took his first sips of experience, in fact. This influence has remained evident in his continued hip-hop hat tips through the length of his career, especially in his early profile-building remix catalog (see: his renditions of iconic rap hallmarks like Nas’ “Made You Look,” Dr. Dre’s “Forgot About Dre,” and Lil Wayne‘s “A Milli”).

While Drezo’s precision in style and form carries weight with him, he says he exercises caution against caustic categorization, specifically in regards to the often dizzying litany of electronic genre nomenclature. And although his sound often varies in tempo, composition, and degree of “darkness” so to speak, he urges that it’s still always “just house music.”

“It’s easy to get caught up in where who stands and with what genre and blah blah blah,” Drezo warns. “You have to remind yourself that we’re all just trying to dance and ask ‘Who really gives a shit?’”

Sage advice from a sharp production talent who has seen electronic music balloon into a global phenomenon and still manages to calculate cautious and precise times to strike. But for the genre purists and even the newcomers alike scoring electronic music’s low-lit locale searching for the right genre tag for “Jaded” or “Ginseng,” the best bet is to probably just shut up and dance like hell. Drezo’s orders.

Skrillex reveals official tracklist for new Dog Blood EP, ‘Turn Off the Lights’Dog Blood Live 2

Fans are on the edge of their seats waiting for Dog Blood’s return, and as the wait finally comes to a close, full details on the incoming new EP are now available. The EP will be called Turn Off the Lights, following the titular Vanilla Ice-sampling track that dropped in March. The new collection comes hot off the heels of Skrillex and Boys Noize’s Clap Back Vol 1. mixtape, which roped together a grip of brand new IDs from the unholy pairing into a 25-minute mix hyping the end of the duo’s extended hiatus.

Turn Off the Lights is a four-track listen—Josh and and X&G will assist on “4 MIND,” Otira is tagged on “KOKOE,” the previously released “TURN OFF THE LIGHTS,” and finally “BREAK LAW.” The new EP will be Dog Blood’s first body of work since 2013’s unforgettable Middle Finger Pt. 2. See the official tracklist for Turn Off the Lights below.

Good news for Skrillex fans—the perpetual state of “new music coming soon” is now confirmed to be coming to an end. New work from the OWSLA boss is being prepared for imminent release, and it sounds like he has more than a few bullets in the chamber. According to Skrillex, the amount of new material he’s currently sitting on, “feels like a couple bodies of work,” and that’s aside from the new Dog Blood EP that’s due to be released on Friday, May 24.

While Skrillex hasn’t exactly kept quiet in recent years, he’s generally stepped away from building out his own canon of original works, and it has been more than five years since his debut LP secured his place within dance music’s highest echelon. It appears that’s all about to change, with a Dog Blood EP already underway, additional separate concepts nearing completion, and enough left over for some “other random releases in the coming weeks.” See the tweet below, and turn Recess up to 11 today; we’re celebrating. New music from Skrillex is due any minute now.

Skrillex and Boys Noize have finally set a date for their long-awaited, resurgent EP under their joint moniker, Dog Blood. The former took to Twitter to announce the four-track project will make its emphatically anticipated landing May 31, as Skrillex confirms each song is finally finished and primed for release.

Dog Blood’s official road to resurrection has been a gradual one, beginning this past March, with performances at BUKU Festival, the Miami Music Week staple, Brownies & Lemonade, as well as Ultra itself promptly after. The torrential twosome paired the feverishly awaited Ultra set with a brand new track, “Turn Off The Lights” that very same day. Skrillex confirmed more new music was on the way shortly thereafter.

Per Skrillex’s tweet, Dog Blood secured some special guest spots to accompany them on the new venture. The project will mark the duo’s third multi-track release, following both the Middle Finger EP of 2012, and the subsequent Middle Finger Pt. 2 of the following year, each jointly released through OWSLA and Boysnoize Records.
